    Either mate to be honest. If you know your going to struggle to get them done then you have answered your own question in a sense. I would scrap doing the MCDST and go down the MCTS route. Obviously if you work for a company that uses XP then the MCDST would be more helpful to you but if your after the cert then both are just as good.

    How many hours of study can you put in each day?

    What book are you using? I used the Sybex book for my MCDST, it had both exams in one book.
    If you can study one hour a day, six months should be more than enough.

    They'd be fine to take... but XP will continue to be used for years to come. If you can knock out the MCDST, I'd encourage you to do so.
